SALT LAKE CITY — Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Crestview, Fort Walton Beach and DeFuniak Springs congregations were among 20,000 people at a March 29 general women's conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The theme was making and keeping sacred covenants, with emphasis on the event's multigenerational and intercultural nature.

Speakers included Elder Henry Eyring, first counselor in the church presidency; Primary General President Rosemary Wixom; Young Women General President Bonnie Oscarson; and Relief Society General President Linda K. Burton.

Women from ages 8 and up were present, and millions watched from LDS meeting houses throughout the world.

 “I Am a Child of God” was sung in eight languages on a video and then was picked up by women and children throughout the world who watched via satellite. This added many more languages to the favorite song.
